France – After a malaise, the trial of Jonathann Daval will resume

Accused of the murder of his wife Alexia, Jonathann Daval had felt bad during his trial in Haute-Saône (F). The interrogation will be able to resume this Thursday normally after the green light from the doctors.

Jonathann Daval’s unease came as the trial had just gotten to the heart of the matter, with two extremely emotionally strong moments.


Jonathann Daval, who suffered from vagal discomfort on Wednesday evening in the midst of an interrogation on the murder of his wife Alexia, has received the approval of doctors and his trial will be able to resume normally before the assizes of Haute-Saône on Thursday, said to AFP the Advocate General. “It’s good, officially a medical certificate of compatibility has been given and Jonathann Daval is going to court to resume the trial,” said Emmanuel Dupic. The accused spent the night under observation at Vesoul hospital.

The hearing is scheduled to resume at 9:00 a.m. According to the Advocate General despite the delay in the proceedings since the start of the trial on Monday, the verdict is still expected on Friday. “We continue on the same course. An Assize Court adapts to events, ”Mr. Dupic continued to the press. “Yesterday the audience was very emotional. We will continue until tomorrow, the day when the verdict will normally be delivered. ”

Jonathann Daval’s unease occurred as the trial had just gotten to the heart of the matter, with two extremely emotional moments: the depositions of the civil parties and the questioning of the accused.

Caught under the fire of questions from President Matthieu Husson who urged him to explain his complicated relationship with Alexia, including their difficulty in conceiving a child, Jonathann Daval suddenly turned pale, before collapsing, after about three quarters time of questioning.

The prison escort officers then took him out of the box. He was then taken to Vesoul hospital where he spent the night from Wednesday to Thursday under observation.

Jonathann Daval has been on trial since Monday for the murder of his wife Alexia. The body of this 29-year-old bank employee was found on October 30, 2017 in a wood, a few kilometers from the marital home of Gray-la-Ville (Haute-Saône). He faces life imprisonment.
